Re: [DML] Re: A/C pressure readings - interpretation?

Hi Joe,
I appreciate the information you have sent.  I had the A/C shop fill  my 
system up with 2.1 lbs R134a, which is what 960 grams converts to.  They  said the 
front seal on my A/C compressor may be seeping a little (there is no  grease 
or dirt but a tiny bit of dye was detected), so I will take the car back  in a 
month once it gets really hot out and I have used the A/C some more.   But 
with a 2.1lb charge, the air was extremely cold out of the vents (almost as  
cold as my stock-134a Lexus) and it was so cold I had to turn the vents away  
from me because it was making the side of my jaw cramp!!  The outside temp  was 
only about 65 deg F however, so it remains to be seen how it will perform  
under 90+ deg F temps.  I will report in about a month with some  longer-term 
results.  But, so far so good!!  
On a side note, this shop is really tops - they treat my car with the  
highest respect, and they only charged me $65 for a two-hour vacuum and  refill!!  
They don't bill you while the machine is sucking down, since  there isn't a 
tech working on it, unlike a shop I was at last year.  At  this price, I could 
just take the car in every three months and recharge  it!!
Thanks -

Hi  Andy,

Today I have visited my A/C man and he dug up the information he  
jotted down while changing my car's A/C to R134a.
I wrote an article  "for dummies" as they call it in the IT business 
which now is at his for  review and comment.
